'Who are we turning into': Talk show host storms off set after heated debate about Michael Sam's kiss with boyfriend

On radio this morning, Glenn reacted to a heated moment on a local Dallas talk show, in which one of the hosts stormed off the set after a conversation about ESPN’s coverage of Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend after being selected in the seventh round of the NFL draft by the St. Louis Rams. After listening to the tense conversation, Glenn wondered who we are turning into and questioned the hyper-sexualization of American culture.

During Tuesday’s edition of KTXD-TV’s talk show The Broadcast, host Amy Kushnir questioned the expediency of broadcasting the extensive PDA.

“Can we just agree that this was an opportunity to make news,” Kushnir asked. “He has every right to do what he wants, that’s not my issue. I just don’t want it in my face.”

“Well, then maybe you don’t need to see romantic comedies or when people kiss on television,” one of the co-hosts shot back.

“Why does [Kushnir] not have the right to say what she means without being slandered,” another co-host countered before Kushnir gathered her belongings and left the set.

“I want you to listen to this for two reasons,” Glenn said. “One, tell me who we're turning into. We're being led by the either the worst people in the world or the dumbest people in the world. And then on top of it, tell me how this lasts.”

While it is clear from the clip that Kushnir’s cohost doesn’t understand the meaning of the word racist, the heated exchange speaks to a larger issue about the expectations people have when watching programming.

“Do you really think that,” Pat asked. “I mean do you believe that homosexuality is part of racism? Or do you think that homosexuality is a race? Or do you think that everything that you don't like is racism?”

“She keeps using that word. I don't think it means what she thinks it means,” Glenn added. “Then she brings up the Nicholas Sparks movie. Hey, would you listen up here for a second? I'm paying my money to go see a Nicholas Sparks movie. I know exactly what I'm getting. I know there's going to be guys and girls or two guys if I go to a gay Nicholas Sparks movie. I know exactly what I'm getting.”

When it comes to watching a sporting event on ESPN, however, Glenn does not believe there is an expectation of sexualized content. Even a ‘family event’ like the Super Bowl has devolved into a commercial-driven machine of questionable content.

“Enough with the Go Daddy commercials during the Super Bowl. I don't need to see it. I'm there to watch it with my family,” Glenn said. “I don't want to sit there with my son or daughter having to look at sexualization of the entire culture. If I go in to a rated R movie, I go into a PG-13 movie, I go into a Nicholas Sparks movie, I know what I'm getting.”

As Glenn explained, this conversation has nothing to do with homosexuality. Instead, this incident on The Broadcast speaks to a larger devolution of an individual’s ability to express him or herself freely in society.

“I got news for you: This particular case has nothing to do with homosexuality,” Glenn said. “I'm so sick and tired of people saying, you know, ‘They want to drag us back to the 1950s.’ Excuse me? You're dragging us back to the 1950s. You have anyone who disagrees with you not able to sit at the same damn lunch counter. I no longer can sit at the same lunch counter as everybody else who has the politically correct opinion. It's not about racism. It's about my viewpoint.”

Glenn vowed that he will not shut up. He will not comply. He will not back down because he knows God lives. He encouraged his listeners to take a similar stance.

"I know God lives. I know God is involved in my life, just as much as he is in your life… Because I know he lives, you will have to imprison me… I will not sit down. I will not shut up. I won't. I will not conform. I will not comply. Period,” Glenn concluded. “If I may quote Obi-Wan Kenobi, ‘Strike me down. Strike me down. I will become far more powerful than you can imagine.”

Bill O'Reilly joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday to discuss a recent House Homeland Security Committee briefing on the impact of the 9/11 terror attacks, during which "national security experts" claimed "right-wing" groups pose a greater threat to the United States than groups like the Taliban or Al-Qaeda.

Glenn played two video clips from the briefing that showed Senior Fellow Brookings Institute Center for Middle East Policy, Daniel Byman, and former National Intelligence Council Chair during the Obama administration, Christopher Kojm, in apparent agreement that "right-wing extremists" are a bigger threat to Americans today than "jihadists."

"I'm someone who has written extensively on both jihadist groups, but also right-wing, white supremacist groups," Byman says in the first video clip. "And in my mind, there's no question that today in the United States, the right-wing and white supremacist violence is a much greater risk."

"I agree with your assessment and those of my colleagues who have spoken already, there's little doubt that the domestic terrorist threat from white nationalists and right-wing extremist groups is greater than the jihadist threat today," Kojm states in the second clip.

"Who are those idiots?" O'Reilly exclaimed. "It's just unbelievable ... they're not even in the same universe. Yeah, there are bad neo-Nazi Americans running around, yeah, but there are very few of them. I mean, the jihadists are causing death and destruction, death and destruction all over the world. Not just in the United States. These people are so blatantly irresponsible and ignorant, it's just staggering."

The Biden administration was recently caught lying about the White House dog, Major, and his history of biting Secret Service agents, according to newly released emails.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn argued that, if the current administration is willing to lie about something so meaningless to the American people, what else are they willing to lie about? For instance, the State Department claims that there are only about 200 American citizens left in Afghanistan who want to be evacuated. But Glenn has heard very different reports from people on the ground. Is it safe to assume they're currently lying to us about all kinds of things — from the "new and improved" Taliban, to the number of Americans left behind in Afghanistan?

Tonight on "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck outlines everything that led up to the chaos in Kabul in a blow-by-blow takedown that SHOULD lead to massive resignations within the Biden administration and top military brass. Americans died. Americans are – TO THIS DAY – still stranded, and it is ALL on President Joe Biden.

Glenn interviews The Nazarene Fund's Rudy Atallah who gives an update on the total rescue numbers and details the obstacles he's had to overcome with the State Department. He explains why he believes they are thwarting private sector rescue efforts and says the numbers of Americans begging to be rescued are in the thousands — not hundreds — and "will exceed any number that has come out of Jen Psaki's mouth." While The Nazarene Fund rescue efforts continue in a more perilous Afghanistan, Rudy reveals another terrifying obstacle: Chinese and Russians resources deployed to assist the Taliban in rounding up church leaders, women, journalists, and lawyers who put terrorists away.

Glenn also interviews Tim Kennedy, an Afghanistan war veteran and president of Sheepdog Response who partnered with SaveOurAllies.org to sneak past the Taliban and bring thousands to safety. He details the moment the bomb went off when he was on the ground at the Kabul airport and addresses the Taliban kill list. "They will kill babies, execute women, and cut your tongue out. That's just the G-rated stuff."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray ripped into President Joe Biden's latest speech in which our commander in chief touted the Afghanistan withdrawal as an "extraordinary success" that was "designed to save American lives" — despite the loss of 13 of America's finest, our military equipment in the hands of our enemies, and scores of Americans and allies still trapped in Afghanistan.

"This was not a success by any stretch of the imagination and people need to be held accountable," Glenn asserted. "Because if this is allowed to stand, and these people are just allowed to continue on with no ramifications, you don't not want to see what our military will turn into. I am telling you now, we will become the darkest force ever, ever to walk the earth. With our technology, and our resources, with our fighting machines that soon can be run robotically, we will make the Nazis look like rookies ... this must not continue!"

Glenn then played a video clip from the speech in which President Biden claimed that the "Taliban has made public commitments, broadcast on television and radio across Afghanistan, on safe passage for anyone wanting to leave, including those who worked alongside Americans."

"Anyone who says, 'Oh, they're going to let them through their checkpoint,' doesn't know their ass from their elbow!" Glenn responded. "They have no idea what is going on, or they are lying. So, Mr. President, which one is it? Do you not really know what's going on? If so, the 25th Amendment should be invoked. If you do know what's going on, then you should be impeached for lying to the American people on such a grand scale, it's staggering!"
